Missouri History Museum Opens New Coffee Exhibit This Weekend

The museum uses coffee to share a lesser-known side of St Louis history.

Coffee-cup-on-roasted-coffee-beansThe Missouri History Museum, located in St. Louis, has been a great educational resource since it was founded in 1913. It has grown and changed over the years, but it continues to educate and impress its visitors. Its newest exhibit, "Coffee: The World in Your Cup and St. Louis in Your Cup," details the history of coffee in St. Louis and around the world. The exhibit runs from October 3, 2015, to January 3, 2016, and it spans across 6,000 square feet.

Most of the exhibit teaches visitors about St. Louis' 200-year relationship with coffee, exploring the path that once made St. Louis this nation's leader in coffee production. Fascinating information is delivered in the form of images, artifacts, videos and maps that have been carefully curated by the museum's staff. The rest of the exhibit is on loan from the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture in Seattle, Washington. The traveling portion of the exhibit focuses on the journey of coffee all around the world as it is grown, harvested and eventually turned into the delicious beverage that signals the beginning of a new day.

Coffee may be a great way to start the morning, but it is also a commodity that has been bought and sold for centuries. As this plant exchanged hands, it began to have a powerful impact on economies, cultures and even the environment. The latest exhibit at the museum chronicles this evolution, so you might think differently about your morning cup of java after visiting.

It can be difficult to enjoy all of Missouri history in just one day, so you may want to find a good place to rest and make a weekend getaway out of it. The Chase Park Plaza is located in downtown St. Louis. Book a stay with us, and you'll be near The Arch, the Magnificent Fox Theater, Powell Symphony Hall and much more.

The 2015 Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival

This International film festival in St Louis is positioned to highlight some of the most compelling young talent in the industry.

The St Louis Film Festival is on the horizon, and the prestigious event will draw guests and contributors from around the world. Established in 1992 as the flagship event of Cinema St. Louis, the film festival has since grown into a regional institution. CSL has since expanded its reach to cover a variety of events throughout the year, but the local film festival November 5 through 15 still remains the organization's premier event.



NOVEMBER 5-15, 2015

The film festival will feature a number of attractions spanning the course of 10 days. Films, guests and events will be spread throughout the city of St. Louis, including college campuses like Webster University and Washington University, a dedicated stage at the non-commercial radio station KDHX, and the beautiful and historic Tivoli Theatre.

The International Film Festival has featured some of the most gripping films of their time. Past screenings have included a range of genres and styles, including the bleak rural drama of "Winter's Bone," "The Rite" by Swedish auteur Ingmar Bergman and the starkly realistic "The Bet Collector." Films range from feature-length movies and documentaries to shorts and include a range of both old classics and new favorites. The festival typically features a number of sidebars with themes shining the spotlight on specific cultural groups or thematic issues like environmentalism. A range of guest speakers and special seminars digging into the history and methodology of film offers guests a richer and more comprehensive understanding of the films being featured.

Whether you're an obsessive film lover or a neophyte, come see what the International Film Festival has to offer. We hope you spend your visit with us at The Chase Park Plaza!
